Can I throttle the person who thought that it would be a nifty idea to pile a bunch of crap on top of a vintage Ferrari California? As for the rest of the cars, stored in facilities with corrugated steel roofs and dirt floors, someone must have been conducting an experiment in determining the most efficient manner to convert vintage steel into iron oxide...

That picture looks fake. Putting all those magazine bundles on it would dent the fragile aluminum hood.

Some wonderful cars there though.

I read that the papers really were on the hood so I guess I am wrong about the picture being faked.
